It is up to the person. Vernong is cheap. , Akubane likes "shiny stuff".

Me myself.... I don't have a limit, but it depends on how much it is for the quality and features it offers.

I do like shiny things -.- Cosmos is a cool lookin case XD The more I stared at the lian li the more i didnt like it heh. Guess i shouldn't have spent so much time lookin at it. IMO a black cosmos would rock much more. but meh.
price doesnt concern me, I work long and hard for a decent pay. buying PC stuff is better than drinking it away. And I suck at saving money.. So may as well get somethign in return for it heh
